What is Executive Functioning?

Executive Functioning is a term used to describe a person’s ability to control their thoughts and actions to accomplish a goal. The executive functions that underlie school success—organization, time management, long-term planning, study and test-taking strategies—are areas that are often not taught in school, but are crucial to academic success.

Academic coaches at Savannah Educational Consultants help students create strategies that make sense for the way they think and learn.

Dyslexia & other learning disability evaluations at Savannah Educational Consultants

dyslexia savannah

Could My Child Be Dyslexic?

Research shows that 8 to 10 percent of American children under 18 years of age have some type of learning disability.

Children with learning disabilities are as smart or smarter than their peers, but they may have difficulty reading, writing, spelling, reasoning, recalling and/or organizing information if left to figure things out by themselves or if taught in conventional ways. Psychoeducational or neuropsychological evaluations can reveal whether or not a specific learning disability, ADHD, anxiety or depression is affecting your child’s academic performance.

If you are interested in services or want more information, please call Savannah Educational Consultants at 912-238-9552.
